Sweet Birdie Vindication: Beneath the Cage Grate

Games can be fun, especially during long winter nights. Add Alexa and some guest bots to a game of Hide ‘n Seek though and you have the ingredients for mischief… and (short-lived) birdie jail time…

Morty’s January ’23 Beneath the Cage Grate column will leave you laughing and worrying for our poor Morty, fooled again by his bot nemesis Alexa!

Happy New Year Everybirdie!

What a Bird Wants: Feathered Frenzy

‘Tis the season for making lists, attending festive parties, wrapping presents and the anticipation of that magical day approaching – Christmas Day. It’s not just humans who anticipate and revel in Christmas: many birdies do too – especially Zack and Bubbles!

Our December edition of Feathered Frenzy is a lovely Christmas letter from Zack and Bubbles to their parronts. Pour yourself a glass of eggnog and enjoy Zack and Bubbles’ Christmas wishes!

Turkey Takeout Take Down: Beneath the Cage Grate

Poor Morty’s mum, she was anticipating savoring the enjoyment of a Thanksgiving takeout dinner, brought right to the door, no fuss, no muss. Well, let’s just say that didn’t transpire – for Morty’s mum anyway.

Head on over to Morty’s column to find out where – and who, enjoyed the turkey and mashed potatoes and who ended up locked up (but with a full tummy)!

Bonsai Birdie: Beneath the Cage Grate

Oh dear, poor Morty’s mum has a bonsai heist (and sale) going on right under her own nose. Morty has designs on ‘his’ windowsill and he’s prepared to go to great lengths to secure it!

Catch up with Morty here to find out how his planned sale of mum’s bonsai trees goes spectacularly sideways!

My Ears, My Ears: Beneath the Cage Grate

Let’s face it, some of us just can’t sing. I know I can’t. Well, Morty wants to share his assessment of Alexa’s ‘screeching’ talent in his June ’22 issue of Beneath the Cage Grate. It seems even bots can have delusions of grandeur and over-rated skill. Maybe it was the pizza, or maybe it was Roomba cheering her on. Whatever the motivation, everyone will appreciate Morty’s take on Alexa’s ill-fated attempt to join the choir.
